Selection Committee has revealed NCAA bracket 2013

NCAA bracket 2013 his own success in projecting. In the eight periods I've estimated an NCAA Competition segment, I have never had such difficulties in seeding the area and developing a segment. After viewing Sunday's Choice Display, it seems the Choice Panel will probably keep Indiana with identical emotions. Here are some of my ideas on this year's outcomes.

Performance
I whiffed on just one at-large, as the Choice Panel chosen Center Tn instead of Tn, much to their credit score. That's an enhancement of one from last season, though I'm providing myself a demerit for snubbing the Red Raiders. From a seeding viewpoint, I did almost accurately as well as I did this season. Just like last season, I had 59 groups placed on or within a seeds range (compared to 53 returning in 2011). The distinction is that I had one more group seeded properly now around (36 vs. 35). Six groups were off by two collections (five in 2012), one by three (two last year) and one off by a huge five. More on that particular situation in a bit.


The Top Seeds
This season, I've stressed that the Committee's track record is to reward teams that have won conference championships -- regular season, tournament and, preferably, both. So, the double championships won by Louisville (remember they earned a share of the Big East regular season crown) and Kansas appear to have pushed them both ahead of Indiana, a team that was granted the first No. 1 seed back on Saturday, according to Bobinski. In short, the Hoosiers' inability to beat bogey team Wisconsin likely cost them a shot at playing in the Midwest regional in their backyard.

A double championship also likely pushed Gonzaga past Georgetown (another Big East regular-season co-champ) and Ohio State (which won only the Big Ten Tournament, and at a very late hour to boot) in the pecking order. But what about Miami, which earlier in the day claimed the ACC Tournament title to complete its own double? Again, I suspect that those bad late losses to Georgia Tech and Wake Forest may have knocked the Hurricanes down the list.

As for Miami's ACC rivals from Duke, the lack of a title of any sort kept them stuck on the No. 2 line, as I anticipated.

Thursday

No. 9 Terrence Jones

Brandon Knight # 16, Kentucky vs. Princeton (2:45, CBS)

Jones and Knight, John Calipari is the latest-and-done prospects. Jones is a flamboyant scorer Paul Pierce, the top of the mold. Knight is under siege Kentucky guard, which is very similar to Tyreke Evans, John Wall, only less than both. Bonus! Ian Eagle and Jim Spanarkel are likely to be able to discuss Kentucky Frosh Enes Kanter, No 8 DX board.

No. 25 Jeff Taylor, Vanderbilt vs. Richmond (4:10, TBS)

Junior Commodore is one of the top scorers in the SEC, but must show greater circumference of the Polish move up draft boards.

No. 13 Kawhi Leonard, San Diego State vs Northern Colorado (4:40, TNT)

We wrote about Leonard Wednesday.

N. 27 Patrick Young, the Florida against UC Santa Barbara (18:50, TBS)

Young Billy Young Donovan last great play 20 minutes per game, but it is a physical model of the mold of Al Horford. Keep an eye on him when you are playing.

No. 17 Jimmer Fredette, BYU vs. Wofford (7:15, CBS)

You know all about Jimmie scorer extraordinary BYU. Is JJ Redick? Adam Morrison? Ray Allen? See and make your own opinion!

Kemba Walker No. 7, Connecticut vs. Bucknell (07:20, TNT)

We wrote about Walker on Monday.

Friday

# 20 Jordan Hamilton

Tristan Thompson No. 23 Texas vs. Oakland (12:15 CBS)

Thompson was one of the best freshmen in the country, and is a power forward who finished in the paint along great. Hamilton could have been a first-round pick last year, there is a high octane, perimeter-oriented forward. Two perspectives of pleasure.

Not yarou Mouphtaou 30, Villanova against George Mason (14:10, TNT)

Yarou is a sophomore big man in the middle of reading "Nova, hoping to make long-term tournament.

Derrick Williams No. 6, Arizona vs. Memphis (2:45 PM, CBS)

We wrote about Williams on Monday.

No. 1 Kyrie Irving

Nolan Smith # 23

No. 26 Mason Plumlee, Duke vs. Hampton (15.10 truTV)

Duke has the nation's best hope in Irving, and two more in DX 30 high-Smith best guard in the big man Plumlee and sophomore. Irving could not play and if you do, you will be forgiven if you refuse to take your eyes off him.

Chris Sing No. 18 Florida State Elton vs. Texas A & M (16:10, TBS)

Singleton, a junior attacker, is constitutive of his offense a bit, but still figures to struggle to score at the NBA. Is it the next Corey Brewer, Gerald Wallace or next?

Jared Sullings No. 3 Ohio State vs. Texas-San Antonio (4:40 pm, TNT)

We wrote about Sullings Monday.

Marcus Morris # 19

Markieff Morris No. 24 Kansas vs. Boston U. (6:50, TBS)

Morris twins factor heavily in the Kansas bid for a national championship, is Markieff Robin Lopez Marcus Brook. Unfortunately Markieff not an African to help us continue straight on the runway.

No. 4 Harrison Barnes

John Henson, No. 11, North Carolina, Long Island (19:15 CBS)

We wrote about the prospects for the Barnes and Henson this week.

No. 28 Travis Leslie, Georgia against Washington (21:45, CBS)

Leslie will face a challenge against the Huskies, who have the potential for some pro players on their own. Leslie is a great athlete and, as the Express project a first round talent.
